Long Description:
Because of the plain area around the town it was necessary to build a watertower to provide the neccessary waterpressure.

The tower was build in 1931/1932 which had costed 202189.35 Reichs-Mark.

180 steps are leading from the ground floor to the water tank at the top of the tower.

In 1989 the outside of the building has been renewed and the artwork painting was done which gives the former gray building a nicer look.
